Here Are 25 Awesome Coffee Table Books About Video Games

Miguel Concepcion recently posted a healthy reminder that gamers CAN be bibliophiles — especially where books about video games are concerned. Behold, the 25 Best Video Game Coffee Table Books.

These books look awesome. Among them:

  • 1001 Video Games You Need To Play Before You Die. Enough said.
  • Dawn: The Worlds Of Final Fantasy, an art showcase by Yoshitaka Amano, the series' main character designer through FFVI.
  • Ico: Castle In The Mist, the only novel on the list, translated from Japanese.
  • Portal 2 Collector's Edition Guide, a strategy guide with an artwork section included.
  • i am 8-bit: Art Inspired by Classic video games of the ‘80s
  • The Art of The Mass Effect Universe, which hopefully adheres to Mass Effect canon with a little more integrity than the recent novel.

The 25 Best Video Game Coffee Table Books [Complex]


    How about a book about coffee tables?

      Or a coffee table book about coffee tables, that IS a coffee table.

    I own about half that list already ><

    I love my Valkyria Chronicles art book. I love the art and all the concept works that went into that amazing game. It actually convinced me to buy the PS3.

    The Best Coffee Table book imo is. Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts.

    The first link sent me somewhere else...
